A special presentation for all the “social-sim” listeners- take a deep breath, and when you’re ready, slowly close your eyes to imagine yourself in a world where your friend is high out of their mind, and yet still able to set up a mixer? What if someone took longer to explain the plot of a movie than the movie’s actual run time? It’s real, and it’s happened to your hero Sarah 3 times now- I’ll never need watch 2012, Open Water 2, or, now, The Report (2019). Supposedly starring Annette Bening, we all know who’s the real star of this hyperfixation- the perpetually clammy Seme Adam Driver, playing a perpetually clammy Seme Perfect Lib on a mission to uh– you know, uh, it’s like that time some HS acquaintances of yours did the college town farm larp thing where they paid to kill a goat and then take all the meat home, and have a bonfire to eat it, and for some reason you’re there even though you haven’t seen these guys since one of them broke both their legs trying to paper mâche a chimney into a penis? Imagine that, now imagine we’re all talking about American complicity with the CIA torture program. Here at A&L, we would strive to provide the highest quality “older sibling’s burnout friend” experience, but we’re kinda tired this week :/
Lucia, OK and Sarah sit down for an Adam Curtis struggle sesh to study/relax to, tips on keeping sane for when your parents suddenly discover Cuomo is a scumbag, a quick update on the youth (they’re still shifting), and the NGO to sociopath pipeline.
Please write in if you also think Adam Curtis should have used more or let’s face it any Kylie Minogue clips, Fever was a fucking banger with iconic vids, no one even cares that they aren’t in the BBC archive, remember that terrible piece at PS1 ten years ago that was just like Illuminati visuals against the I Believe In You video? It’s low-hanging fruit that should have been picked. This all mostly to say that she’s got a new video where she’s a disco wizard, PLEASE tell us if you will let us airbrush her on the side of your van!!
